This week was a really full week that actually went flying by. The multi-zone conferences that we had went really well, there were lots of good thing that the missionaries could have learned. We really hope that everybody took notes and really learned some good things. President talked about a really important topic which was, "The Divine Companionship." He really focused on the scripture in Doctrine and Covenants that says something like, we should first obtain the spirit and if we don't we shall not teach. He used a really great talk from Elder Holland that talks about how the plan that God has is that when we, as missionaries, go into a house we are to take with us the Holy Spirit, and not God the Father or God the Son.
Although the talk was given directly to missionaries it also applies to all people in all stages of life. As Dad wrote about in his letter to me today, the importance of being like a child (crying, throwing food, etc...) just kidding J. Being like a child and being humble, willing to just believe, doing the will of the Father, and lots more become more and more essential as we grow in age. It's almost like our time as kids is to be able to prepare ourselves for adulthood. In the moment of needing and wanting the companionship of the Spirit it is necessary to not just acknowledge children like attributes but develop children like attributes, which in hindsight are really Christlike attributes.
Liseth and Reginaldo are still progressing, they didn't drink coffee even once in the last week. We had plans for a member to pass by for them on Sunday bringing them to church, but he didn't show up. So when Liseth and Reginaldo came walking into church we were a little surprised. When we talked to them after the sacrament meeting they said at 9:15, when the brother still hadn't showed up to bring then to church, they paid for a tuk tuk to be able to get to church. Shows that they really want to be in the church and make the sacrifices necessary to be at church.
I hope that you all continue to be happy and have a very successful week! Stay strong and committed to doing the will of our Father and not our own.
Love you all tons!
